Abstract
The Airborne Microwave Radiometer (AMR) is a multifrequency, passive microwave radiometer to be installed on an aircraft. Form 1996, the AMR has been used in two spaceborne instrument projects: the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer (AMSR) on the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite- II (ADEOS-II) and the AMSR-E on the EOS Aqua satellite. The major objectives of AMR are to develop retrieval algorithms and to calibrate and validate AMSR and AMSR-E. We recently modified the instrument to improve its stability and usability. The results of a set of test flights show an improved in-flight and interflight stability. We will conduct several AMR underflights to confirm AMSR and AMSR-E on-orbit calibration.
